The University’s South Campus entrance onto Columbia St. is a broad intersection frequented by pedestrian and road traffic alike.

The pilot lanes link up with the pre-existing King St. separated bike lane further south of University Ave. West.

The pilot cycling lanes on Erb St. East are situated in the heart of Uptown Waterloo, forming links between existing cycling infrastructure in the area. Bike paths already in operation near Erb St. East include Laurel Trail and an existing bike lane extending from Father David Bauer Drive.

The shortest of the trial bike lanes, the Albert St. segment branches off of University Ave. West and includes planters in addition to the bollards seen along the other pilot lanes.

Adjacent to Wilfrid Laurier University buildings, the planter separated bike paths will hopefully be filled with bright spots of vegetation come springtime.

West, this segment of the bike paths has the most potential to be used by UW students due to its proximity to campus and off campus student residences.
